A group of women in Burkha are seen running on a road in the 28-second clip. Additionally, we observe that some men who are standing by the side of the road spray water on them as they flee. This post is shared with a claim stating, “Muslim girls terrorized in India.” You can view related posts with similar claims here, here, and here.

What’s the truth?

We started our analysis with all the viral keyframes which led us to a Facebook video. According to the Almashoora Breaking News the same video is posted with a caption, “Ignorance that is staged in the name of sharing…..!

Here you can see a part of the incident that took place in the University of East, Vantharumoolai while the courses have been banned for many students in the universities of the country due to the incidents of excessive sharing of ragging videos.

In the name of university traditions, the female students walking are attacked by throwing muddy water on them.

No parent would ever accept this situation for girls going to university for higher education amid a thousand hardships and expectations. However, it is noteworthy that some students like and support these things in the name of “Fun”. -Almashoora News”

Since the viral video shows only Muslim girls being attacked, we searched further and found a full video on a Facebook page. In this video, we can see not only Muslim students but all the students at the university are similarly ragged by their seniors.

Here, we see videos of other students along with Muslim girls also seen attacked by throwing mud water. The difference there is between upper-class students (Senior) and lower-class students (Junior). Ragging is brutal on all the students studying in the lower classes. Students who behave like this will be suspended, but again such ragging keeps on occurring.

Many students have died due to ragging in Sri Lankan universities. It is unfair to treat the juniors in such a cruel way by the seniors.

According to the available sources, it is clear that the video of mudslinging and brutalizing the girls did not happen in India and it was not only happening to Muslim girls.


To sum up, the viral claim stating Muslim girls are terrorized in India is false. In reality, the viral clip is from Sri Lanka. Moreover, it’s a video from ragging all students irrespective of their religion by the seniors in their university.
